INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON HUMANITIES AND ISLAMIC CIVILIZATION (ICON-HIC) 2019

Bandung-Indonesia, 26th – 28th June, 2019

The era of Industrial Revolution 4.0 is the continuation of the previous era since the iron and textile industries, electric industry, digital industry, until cyber-physical system. This era was initially a project of German government in 2011 focusing on corporation and factory computerization. This era causes some fundamental changes in various fields.

As the effect of the changes, people are seemingly to experience disruption in technology, economy, social, culture, politics, and education. Another effect is the geo-politics decreases as the free trade zone develops so fast, such as ZEE, AFTA, and CAPTA. The most horrifying effect is if this era causes humanity problems, such as human values and local wisdom, automatically the human relationship will be mechanistic and individualistic of which human will be like a robopath.

To minimize the effects of the 4.0 era, Japan government attempted to create the grand design of 5.0 community of which they will be served to run the humanity-based technology. For them, industrial revolution and disruption are functioned as challenge and opportunity in technology and education.

Generally, Moslem community attempt to minimize the poverty, Human Development Index (HDI) gap, and technology lagging.
